11:17 Sonali Verma - It's a performance view that we are planning to add in for commodities, currencies and indexes.

Is there a fee for using Watchlist?
11:17 Sonali Verma - Not at all. It's free. Enjoy it! All you have to do is register.

Is there any way that original stock costs can be listed and then current total values be automatically updated ?
11:18 Sonali Verma - Sounds like another candidate for our portfolio tool:

Thanks I really like my watchlist and follow it daily.
11:19 Sonali Verma - Thank you very much!

My Watchylist keeps reverting to an older version I updated several weeks ago. Have tried logging out and back in again but no change.
11:19 Sonali Verma - Our customer service reps can help you with that. Please email that to: email@example.com

Browser is Firefox
11:20 Sonali Verma - Is it Java script-enabled? That might be the problem.

All my real investments are in my portfolio. I would like to know gains or losses in my watchlist along with all the other useful information. This would help me in making a buying decision. Thanks you.
11:21 Sonali Verma - If you want to see daily gains or losses, you can use the My Shares view on Watchlist. For longer-term changes, price history and transaction history, stick with the portfolio tool.

How do I get the time of the last transaction for stocks in Build Your Own view? Latest Price column normally has this, but not in Build Your Own.
11:23 Sonali Verma - Thanks for pointing that out! We'll add it in as a column that you can pick when you customize your Build Your Own view.
11:23 [Comment From Jo]
Where is "build your own view" located?
11:25 Sonali Verma - Glad you asked. It is under the Stocks and ETFs section.
Look at the upper right hand corner of the Stocks and ETFs box. You will see a drop-down menu from where you can choose your preferred view, such as My Shares, Dividends, Per Cent Performance, All News, Earnings, and others. Pick the Build Your Own option.

Have no idea what 'scrip-enabled' means. I update all Java as they push them out. I have not disabled anything.
11:27 Sonali Verma - This is from our Comments section, from a reader identifying themself as Top Level:
1. make the Company column wider so you can read the entire name (ie:especially ETF names).
2. decrease the width of columns such as Change Today (dollars and %'s) as the too-wide columns chew up too much space > perhaps allow a personal column width option.
3. make it easy to transfer holdings from one list to another, with the change out providing auto erase on the old list location.
11:28 Sonali Verma - Try the Build Your Own view, which is a little bit more compact, so you can see more data on the same screen.
11:29 Sonali Verma - There is an Import function that lets you pull an existing Stocklist or Fundlist into your Watchlist.
We are working on making it possible to copy a Watchlist at the click of a button as well.

Great job on the site. Will there be a bond section
11:30 Sonali Verma - Thanks for the suggestion! That's something we'll have to consider -- good to know that you're interested in that.
11:31 Sonali Verma - You can customize Build Your Own view so that it pulls several types of dividend data as well as volume.
11:31 Sonali Verma - (Sorry forgot to post the question there! Here it is:)
11:31 [Comment From Jo]
Okay, so I want a volume column in my dividends view -- how do I place it there from 'build your own view'? Thanks.

In the older system, in Fundlist, I could compare all my fund holdings in several ways. Now, in Watchlist, if I click on one fund, and then on a link to get these various criteria, I don't get all my funds, but only the fund I clicked and a page of other funds from its family
11:32 Sonali Verma - Hi, Michael. Jonathan tells me that the software team is working on making fund comparison functionality available in the future. Thanks for your feedback!
